Love my Titan

I went looking for a Freelander at a JLR garage and, after a test drive, came away with this beauty. To put it into context, I worked for Land Rover Events, putting new models through their paces, and decided I wanted a 4x4 for winter time.
The Kia was a stunning looking car, with every extra imaginable, including cruise and heated seats. It was also £10,000 less than the nearest Freelander of similar age. It is comfortable for long journeys and has enough grunt when accelerated. It's great for towing a caravan. It has less "wallow" than my friend's Range Rover. It has masses of room in the boot and sits on 19 inch wheels.
Last year, in Spain, we had to contend with winter snow of about 18 inches overnight. This machine handled it brilliantly on mountain roads and without having to engage low ratio. My brother in law was so impressed that he bought a brand new model (mine stIil looks better in Black).
Downsides? .... Fuel economy is not great, probably sub 30 mpg overall and emissions on the automatic make VEL about £500 per annum
